[2013] EWHC 3790 (Admin)

The issuing by Revenue and Customs of an application under the Criminal Justice and Police Act 2001 s.59(6) for an order authorising the retention of articles seized following the execution of a search warrant, together with a concession that the warrant was unlawful in one respect, did not render academic the hearing of the claimants' challenges to the issue of the warrant: in exercising its discretion under s.59, the Crown Court would need to know the full circumstances of the illegality of the warrant.
